Honey Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

3/4 cup Island Gold Liquid Wildflower Honey

1 large egg

1 teaspoon orange extract

1-1/2 cups quick cooking rolled oats

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

Cream the butter and Island Gold honey until smooth. Add egg, and orange extract and mix until well blended. In a separate bowl combine oats, flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture stirring until just combined. Drop heaping tablespoons on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350'F oven for 12-15 min. When cookies are golden on the bottom and starting to get golden on top they are ready. Remove to a rack to cool. Optionally you can add walnuts, raisins or dried cranberries.
